Did you recognize “Gail (30 something, straight, single, Gidget with Attitude),” a local travel writer, in Rebecca Chekouras’s My Word essay in the February 25 San Francisco Chronicle Magazine? “The stories she sent back were each a Faberge egg using an economy of words to open a wealth of images. I loved them.”

I have to link to the article, both because “Gail” is a friend of mine (yes, she’s a wonderful travel writer, and yes, she’s Gidget with Attitude), and because I really enjoyed Rebecca’s writing, and will be watching for her forthcoming book, Through the Turquoise Gate.
